Estonia’s flagship startup and tech gathering Latitude59 is postponed due to growing concerns related to the coronavirus outbreak. The event 2020 will take place on August 27-28, 2020.
After discussions with the Estonian Health Board, Municipality of Tallinn, partners and team, Latitude59 decided to postpone the event in order to minimise the further spread of the COVID-19 virus and to offer the attendees, partners and staff the safest event possible.
Although the risk of the virus spreading locally in Estonia is currently not high, Latitude59 attracts around 2,500 participants from all over the world, which makes the decision to reschedule the responsible course of action.
“After careful deliberation with our team, partners and taking into consideration the recommendations from the Estonian Health Board, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone Latitude59. This decision was not made lightheartedly, but given the current situation around the world, there is no higher priority than the health and safety of all our attendees and everyone else involved. Moving forward, we will use these additional months to make Latitude59 on 27-28 August even better,” said Maarja Pehk, CEO of Latitude59.
Tickets purchased to Latitude59 prior to the date change are valid on 27-28 August. All speakers who are currently announced will be invited to the conference in August. Further updates and information will be available on latitude59.ee.
